The exhibition Visual Human Rights visualises the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in cities and countries around the world. The photos are based on organisations, foundations, individuals and real stories that deal with human rights every day. The exhibition which is part of the Movies that Matter Festival , can be seen from March 4 until March 29, 2019 in the Atrium of the City Hall. On Friday March 22, 2019 there will be a public ceremony led by alderman Saskia Bruines at 17 hours. The exhibition is a collaboration between Visual Human Rights Foundation, Movies that Matter Festival and Atrium City Hall.
The exhibition consists of 30 photographs by the photographer Hoessein Alkisaei, who tries to portray stories and situations of people as raw, as honest, and as tangible as possible. With his photography he tries to create awareness about subjects, situations, and individuals in order to ultimately build a better world.
